  Trik Spotting  
Posted 2002-11-26 by Tony Walsh
TRIK is one of Toronto's most active taggers. Michael Simpson has taken over 100 digipix of the guy's tags. Who has more time on their hands?

Note 2: Prior to finding out about Mike's pix, I put both Trik and Ren tags in a game illustration I did for a client.

    A secret invasion has been in the planning for years now. And the orchestrators aren’t just humans. Animals, plants, and robots are also in cahoots.

They wait an ocean away, big heads on top, small bodies underneath, huge eyeballs on the North American horizon--ironically, the very place from whence they were spawned. What was hatched in New York City fled to Japan, where it grew, multiplied, and prospered. It will only be a matter of time before the Western world is overrun with the super-freaky cartoon creations of Rodney Greenblat, disdaining the comparatively mundane Pokemon and Hello Kitty phenomena.
